From Sr. Bea Hernandez, JPIC Coordinator:
The annual US Budget Bill is a moral document which proclaims to the world what our real values are. As citizens, we need to inform congress of what we feel should be our highest priorities. As climate change continues to affect Earth our common home with droughts, floods, and devastating storms, we need to call on congress to appropriate the full $11.4 billion dollars that President Biden called for to address climate change and to help impoverished countries around the world who are suffering the most to transition to clean energy and to deal with the effects of climate change. Please read the information and consider signing onto the letter from the Union of Concerned Scientists call for full funding of this effort.
